Our Approach

Statewide Gambling Therapy Service offers one on one treatment with qualified therapists. Therapists support clients through therapy enabling clients gradually to face the situations and feelings that had make them want to gamble. Teaching clients that with practice they are able to overcome the urge to gamble.

Clients are encouraged to speak with a peer consultant who has had first hand experience and has completed the treatment successfully.
